Micron's new flash memory device stores 128 Gb in just 146 mm2 of space
Micron has been working on NVDIMMs, a 'hybrid' storage solution, aiming to bridge the gap between DRAM and SSDs. The idea is that all the data in the DRAM would get written to NAND memory upon losing power.
Endurance. Reliability. Data protection. They're all important factors when it comes time to evaluate high-end storage technology. Micron's P400m, the company's latest enterprise-class SSD, is positioned to not only address those needs, but exceed them.
Announced earlier this year, Micron's RealSSD P320h PCI Express-based SSD promises to be an enterprise workhorse. A custom controller, single-level cell NAND, amazingly low latency, stellar random I/O, and incredible endurance combine to blow us away.
AgigA Tech has found a partner to work to bring its non-volatile DRAMs to market: Micron said that it is co-developing the technology with Cypress Semiconductor's subsidiary.
Micron is still trying to make its way through a rather complex process to purchase bankrupt DRAM maker Elpida.
Michael Rayfield, the former man in charge of Nvidia's mobile business, is now employed by memory maker Micron.
Micron said it is the first memory maker to have started volume production of phase change memory (PCM).
Enterprise-class SSDs use costly SLC NAND or, more frequently, eMLC flash. But Micron's RealSSD P400e raises eyebrows by using low-cost MLC memory. Does this make sense on an SSD fighting for the affections of data center managers with read-heavy apps?
Micron said that it has begun shipping "fully functional" DDR4 memory modules in sample numbers to customers.
Semcon Tech has filed a patent infringement suit against several chip makers, including IBM, Intel, Fujifilm electronics, Texas Instruments, Micron and Samsung.
Industry rumors suggest that Micron will be the winning bidder to purchase struggling chip maker Elpida.
IHS has released data that highlights a speculated merger between Micron and Elpida, which would create the second largest DRAM company worldwide.
